In the past couple of weeks, KTEP has received calls and emails from you, our listeners, asking about our well-being and when the KTEP Spring On-Air Pledge Drive will take place. First, I am deeply touched by your concern. In consultation with the staff, I have made the decision to postpone our usual Spring On-Air Pledge Drive. I cannot, in good conscience, place the health of our staff or the health of our volunteers in jeopardy.
We are also touched that many of you have continued to support KTEP in these troubled and uncertain times with your contributions at ktep.org. Now, more than ever, your need for accurate and unbiased information is necessary to keep you and yours safe and well. Please know, the staff will continue to work diligently to provide you with the information you need to know regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and other news of interest.
We are also aware, that in these tense times, you also need a respite from the troubling circumstances going on around you. As such, KTEP will continue to bring you the music and arts programming you enjoy. While we have postponed our Pledge Drive, we still welcome your generous contribution to keep these important programs on-the-air. You can pledge your support at https://apps.ktep.org/pledge-form.
As a native El Pasoan, I am humbled and grateful for the love and concern you have shown for us and for each other. On behalf of our staff and volunteers, thank you. We are KTEP, we are El Paso United!
